For shorter swim trunks, we always think of Birdwell's Beach Britches, the Cali institution that's been cranking out simple nylon shorts since 1961. Of course, there are other options like Rag & Bone's seersucker pair (appropriate for apres diving drinks at the cabana) or J.Crew's madras board short style with a slightly longer, seven-inch inseam. But our inner Bond responded most to Orlebar Brown's trim setter model, complete with 60s-era side fasteners. Now suit up and find your Honey Ryder.
Daniel Craig's tiny briefs in "Casino Royale" were made by Italian lingerie label, La Perla.
